My favorite mountain proved to be Cerro Torre in Argentina. It was the site of one of the most famous mountaineering hoaxes featured in a film titled "The Rocks Cry Out". I had seen parts of the film years ago, and tried to find it after out trip.....Seems not to exist anymore. ( I've linked to a National Geographic article, because if you search for the title of the film you'll be sent to evangelical christian sites. Apparently someone used the same name for a recent religious book.)
The day of our visit there was supposed to be a Base Jumper. Very dangerous sport. But the weather closed in (Below) and the jumps was canceled.
